Introduction to the program
At Alleghenies Surgical, our team of healthcare providers specialize in the medical management of the disease of obesity. We are here to help you lose the weight and keep it off.
What makes this different from other plans you have tried in the past? We take an individualized approach to develop your weight loss plan and work with you every step of the way to help you reach your goals. We modify the plan and provide the education and support needed to achieve your goals. Weight loss is not just about eating less and exercising more. We understand the various influences that affect your decisions that impact your weight and we have the expertise to help you overcome these obstacles.
Difference from commercial products or fad diets
We don’t promise gimmicks or fads that claim to be the magic effortless results. We instead focus on you and develop a plan that you feel comfortable that you can maintain while losing weight. Our medical weight loss team work in partnership with you to first identify the barriers that have prevented you from achieving your weight loss goals and develop a strategy with specific goals and plans to manage your weight. These programs range from intense programs to a gradual steady weight loss treatment plan. Our highly skilled interdisciplinary is comprised of numerous weight management specialists and nationally recognized specialists in the field of bariatrics (weight management).
All of our programs are based upon current medical research and evidence based medicine. Our medical clinicians perform a comprehensive history and physical exam. We will analyze your resting metabolic rate and perform a body composition to help tailor your nutritional plan. We offer free weight checks and online support for all programs. Counseling, behavior modification and lifestyle coaching is incorporated into each office visit to help you every step of the way.
Individualized/Concierge Customer service approach/Non-judgmental
People gain weight for many different reasons. That is why the programs at Alleghenies Surgical take into account the differences between individuals and tailor customizable treatment plans. We understand that a “one size does not fit all” approach is not effective for long term weight loss results. Before a plan is developed, we will take the time to do an individualized assessment of your health and your situation that may be prohibiting you from achieving your weight loss goals. We then begin to discuss a realistic and practical approach to a treatment plan that is right for you. Our office understand the difficulties you have faced and provide an understanding and supportive environment. The foundation of our program is you, and every journey has its own challenges. We are not here to judge, rather to help you. You will find our helpful and courteous staff accessible and easy to talk with as we assist you through your journey to a healthier life.
